This race organized by the Wainwright Runners offers a challenging start to your racing season and a great way to celebrate Earth Day. Join us for a 5K, 10K, or a 2K kids run . The route is out and back along a paved multi-use trail (Ascot and Area Recreation Trail RR#70) beside the CFB Wainwright Buffalo pasture. The route is rolling terrain and should challenge all abilites of runners. Every participant walks away with a lodgepole pine as part of our Earth Day theme. For those lucky enough to place in the top three spots of their running category, they will walk away with a hand painted mug by Canadian Artist Debra Cherniawsky-Durrer.

The course is on a paved path called the Ascot and Area Recreation Trail (RR#70). Due to our "Spring" weather, please be prepared for areas of possible mud or water on the multi-use trail. There is a section that will not be paved (300m) so it might be muddy so be prepared and take your time at this location. As well please dress in layers as in past years we have had snow during our race! It does make for epic post race photos!
